the actuator inside the sterring column that the lock cylinder turns is boken, this is a very complex job and is not for the home tech without a factory service manual.

I also have a 2000 stratus and the wheel turns


The ignition cylinder is either worn out or you may have a key that has excessive wear. Try using another key or you may be able to take your vin number and proof of ownership to a dealer and make a new key. Chrysler is known for faulty ignition switches though and if the new key does not work you will have to replace the ignition lock cylinder.
